HORACE REED, D. D., L. L. D. From life to life eternal Dr. Horace Reed, one of the most distinguished and most widely known ministers of the Methodist Episcopal Church, pass- ed at noon on Sunday November the fifteenth. In 1895 Dr. Reed was named a trustee of Illinois Woman's College and for nearly twenty years he was intimately associated with its administration. He rejoiced in its progress and was watchful for opportunity in finding* friends who would aid in its advancement. As a minister and leader in church activities Dr. Reed served as pastor of many larg-e churches in the conference, and in the cities where his work was appointed he never failed to manifest a breadth of intrest that extended beyond the bounds of his parish and enlisted his service in all that pertained to the welfare of the community life. During* the recent session of Illinois Conference at Shelby ville Dr. Reed in compliance with an invita- tion extended to him celebrated his g-olden anniver- sary in the ranks of the ministry by preaching* a special sermon, which was g*iven with the power and vig-or characteristic of his discourse. And thus, with a well rounded life of nearly seventy four years, his course has been run and from his co-labor- ers and from the Lord whom he served he receives the <4 Well done"of his finished course.

During the last month events have rapidly taken place which will go down in the records of the college. We have been pushing forward to a fuller college life with rapid strides. The length and meaning of these strides no one can fully realize. The withdrawal of the charter of the College Council, the granting of a charter to the Student's Association, and the adoption of the constitu- tion of the new association have rapidly followed one after the other. The formation of this largest of all organizations, made possible by the earnest endeavor of the trustees and faculty to co-operate with. the students for the highest de- velopment of all, gives us opportunity to stretch out and develop to an untold extent. It means a bigger college and, above all, bigger students. However, in our en- thusiasm for doing things, we must not forget the big prin- ciple of co-operation. The granting of this charter to us does not mean that we have been given the right to "run things.'' We cannot succeed if we take this attitude and try to work against the faculty. Only when we realize that because of their sympathy with us and their desire to co-operate with us did the faclulty make this possible for us, will we be able to accomplish the bigger things. Therefore, let us take co-operation as our watchword! Page Three Wht College (greeting* PRESIDENT HARKER'S CHAPEL ADDRESS. A year and a half ago, March 5, 1913, it was my pleasure and privilege to inaugurate Student Government in the College by the organization of the College Council. I regarded that as one of the most important events of my entire college administration. It was my joy to see that it was also appreciated by both faculty and students. An Editorial in the College Greetings at the time ex- pressed so clearly the spirit of both faculty and students, that I cannot do better than quote it at length: "College spirit has been the goal for which we have striven for several years, but not until we as a student body could sacrifice something, could do something bigger than we had yet done, something that made us forget self for the time, did the college spirit come. The interest and feeling of the past month when we have been giving all our thoughts and time to endowment has brought us all to a clearer realization of our latent loyalty. Our ideals must now be to keep the current of our enthusiasm in the right direction. The loyalty and enthusiasm we have shown for endowment, a temporary interest, must now be shown for the College as a college. " Nothing has given me more pleasure and more hope for the future or the College than the increasing loyalty all the students have shown in everything pertaining to college advancement. You have shown yourselves eager and yet thoughtful to share in college responsibilities and keenly alert to the higher college interests and to college honor. It is therefore a delight to me to say this morning that the experiment in student government, begun by the or- ganization of the College Council, has fully met our ex- pectations. You have shown yourselves worthy of the confidence reposed in you. The College Council has done its work well and has advanced every interest for which it was organized. Es- pecially it has unified all college activities, it has promoted Page Pour. HRfje College Greeting* college spirit, it has conserved college loyalty and enthu- siasm, and it has stood for the highest ideals of honor and true womanliness. Under its guidance a still better or- ganization has been worked out, and at its suggestion, I now have the honor to present to you a charter for a Stu- dents' Association, and as soon as the new association is formed and the officers elected and installed, the College Council, having finished its work, its charter will be with- drawn at its own request and it will cease to be. The following resolution was unanimously adopted by the College Council at a meeting held October 29th: "In view of the fact that a Students' Association is about to be organized, with power to control all student activities, the Council feels that the work for which it was organized can be carried on much more efficiently by the proposed organization. The Council heartily endorses this larger movement, and would suggest to President Harker that, with the installation of the officers of the new association, the work of the Council be considered complete, and that the charter granted to it be with- drawn." (Signed) Alma B. Weber. Secy. Pro tern. I regard the granting of this charter as one of the crowning acts of my administration as President and this day, October 30th, 1914, as one of the red letter days in the history of the College. I congratulate the entire body of students on the honor conferred upon them by trustees and faculty in the granting of this new charter, and confi- dently believe that you will exercise your new powers and duties with womanly thoughtfulness and with increasing ability. THE ADOPTION OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE STUDENTS' ASSOCIATION. On Thursday morning, Nov. 12, 1914, a mass meet- ing was held which is one to be remembered. At this Page Five Cfje College (©reettng* meeting the constitution and by laws of the Students' As- sociation were read. Article by article it was adopted with few objections, which showed good hard work by the constitution committee, which consisted of Feril Hess, Helen Dinsmore, May Bigger and Ruth Want, assisted by the Faculty Student Government committee made up of Miss Mothershead, Miss Neville, and Miss Jennie Ander- son. The constitution has been under way practically all fall and great care was taken to make it cover our par- ticular needs. This formation of ourselves into an organized body is really a wonderful sign of our awakening latent ability. Nothing that has ever been done by us as students has had such deep, sincere significance as this organization. It gives to our college life a new purpose and deeper mean- ing. To be a success it must mean that we as students are united by a feeling of "altogetherness" that goes over and beyond the bonds of class or society. Let it never be said of us, "Yes, they have a Students' Association, but it isn't a success." We of the middle west are criticised for indifference of action and opinion. Every man cannot light the fuse of the cannon, but dozens can carry ammu- nition to be shot off. Apply the figure to yourself and re- port for duty. We are indebted to the trustees, the President, and the faculty for our liberal charter. With sincerity of purpose and loyalty to the College, we pledge ourselves to prove that we are worthy of the rights granted us therein. On November 19th and 20th the following officers of the executive board were elected by the entire student body as the constitution of the Students' Association re- quires: President — Feril Hess. Vice-President — Audrey Berryman. Secretary — Ruth Harper. Treasurer — Ruth Want. Page Bis Wyt College (greeting* TOMMY PUMPKINS THANKSGIVING. A happy family of pumpkins lived in one of the many shocks of corn that dotted Farmer Brown's fields. How- ever, they were not to live there always, for one day about, two weeks before Thanksgiving Farmer Brown and his hired men drove into the fields and loaded this family with all of their neighbors into huge wagons. While many were taken to town and sold, this family and a few rela- tives were placed in the spacious cellar of the farm house. Father and Mother Pumpkin with all the aunts and uncles were the first to be laid on the floor, then came the cousins and the children and on the very top was little Tommy Pumpkin. They were not as comfortable as they had been in the corn shock, but they soon became ac- customed to their new surroundings and were quite happy. The conversation among the apples and nuts was par- ticularly interesting to them. It was all about Thanks- giving. "What does Thanksgiving mean?" they asked eagerly and although the apples and nuts tried to explain to them, all the information they could obtain was a very confused jumble of ideas about company, turkeys, pies, cranberries, cakes and good times. Now that their curi- osity had been aroused, they asked question of everyone, but received no satisfactory answers. The day before Thanksgiving, Mrs. Brown came into the cellar with little Dickie Brown. After filling several pans with apples, nuts and vegetables, she turned to the pumpkins and picked out several of the aunts and uncles saying, "I think these will make very nice pies for Thanks- Page Seven Wfjt College Greeting* giving dinner." Pointing to little Tommy she added, "Dickie, you may take that little one up to make a jack-o- lantern for the table." The pumpkins were carried up a long dark flight of stairs till they were brought into the sunny farmhouse kitchen. There the aunts and uncles were soon made into lovely golden pies and placed on the pantry shelf. It was here Tommy found them later, at first they did not recognize him for great pieces were missing in his sides and his internal structure was completely demolished. They spent that day and night in a frenzy of excitement. At last the great day came. Tommy was soon taken from the shelf and placed in the center of a long, long table. There he could watch everything because he had eyes now, thanks to Dickie Brown. From this favorable position he saw the guests come and then the dinner as it was served. After what seemed a long time the pies were brought on. Tears came into his eyes as he watched his aunts and uncles disappear. When the people had gone, Dickie took Tommy down in the cellar and placed him near his mother and father saying, "I think it's a shame Cousin Fred couldn't he here today. I'll save this until he comes so he can see It" Tommy was very glad to be home once more. He spent days relating his impressions of the feast and answering the innumerable questions asked by his curious relatives. Marion Jane Robinson. AN EARLY NOVEMBER MORNING. What a glorious morning it was! One of those rare, beautiful mornings of early November that is almost in- describable to those who do not live in this climiate. The air, so different from that of the congested city, was fresh and full of fragrance caught up from the verdure of Mother Earth. The cows in the nearby pastures, yet wet with the night's heavy dew and the white and black wooly Page Eight Z1)t College Greeting* y^ sheep in the distance were standing with heads erect, nos- trils dilated as if they, too, were at every breath filling their lungs with the cool Autumn air. The big red sun had just made its appearance. It stood at a standstill on the horizon as if it were waiting for the stars to make a hasty retreat. The eastern sky was ablaze with the red, yellow, pink, lavender and gray rays of the sun while the other part of the heavens was as blue as turquoise, with a few small stars here and there. The tall trees, which on every side touched the sky, were strikingly beautiful in their new brilliant clothes. The dew-covered pastures dotted here and there with shrubs were even more beauti- ful than in the summer. There was nothing to mar the beauty or stillness of the morning. An occasional cock- a-doodle-doo or the sweet trilling of a song bird were the only signs of life. As I looked upon the sleeping world from my little twelve-paned farmhouse window I won- dered that it was my first realization of the beauty of things about us. Armeada Grace Brown, M8. THE RUINED NEW IDEA. "Oh dear, let's do have something different this year, Jane. I'm dreadfully tired of the same old kind of Hal- lowe'en party. A few stalks of corn propped lamely around the walls of the old barn, several jack-o-lanterns sputtering and smoking and the fortune-telling games we have played for ten years ! For myself, I intend to let my Page Nine LJLfJ Wtft College iSreettns* ears listen to any whispering new ideas," said Eleanor. Then she and her chum chatted gaily on to other subjects. The next day as Eleanor was walking briskly down the leaf-strewn country road, her idea came and whispered in her ear. Why not have a party right out in the field? The corn wigwams, the bright bonfires, the rising moon would make the loveliest Autumn setting. And besides, what a novelty it would be to send out invitations read- ing: "Please come to my field party on All Hallowe'en's Eve." Jane approved, so merrily began the planning of games, the creation of pies, and the sculpture of pump- kins, and Eleanor was happy in her new idea. At the mystic hour of midnight on the next-to-the-last of the beautiful days of the most beautiful of fall months, with a gentle flutter and rustle, out from the dozens of wigwams dotting the cornfield, came the little wee people dancing. But their happiness changed to consternation when they saw the unlit bonfires and the mutilated pump- kins. Then their dainty little queen, seated in majesty upon a golden maple leaf, gathered her subjects about her. "Our place of revels has been desecrated," said the tiny, dignified prime minister. "The thoughtless mortals plan to have it for themselves tomorrow eve, the only day of the year on which we may hold court before the hour of midnight. How wicked of them to take this spot, sa- cred to us at this one time of the year, since time im- memorial ! Oh, queen, let us teach them a lesson." And at once the whole concourse agreed. Hallowe'en came, Eleanor and Jane and their friends gathered at the field, and fun ran high. But what pos- sessed things? The lovely dry leaves burned brightly, but marshmallows would not toast. "Pop!" they would go, and fall into the fire. Apples took to themselves wings and flew away into dark corners, and if an unwary hand attempted to pursue them, what hordes of tiny briers pricked it! Eleanor, sitting propped up against a corn- shock, was tormented by tiny, fluttering sounds, and now Page Ten Zfa College Greeting* and again some invisible creature tickled her ear. She thot she could catch faint echoes of whispering voices, and yes, she was sure, every time she felt of her ear, a suspicion of a mocking laugh came from the blade of corn above her head. Such mysterious performances got on here nerves, and when she proposed a sing in the near-by home, the rest of the crowd seemed glad. As they trooped out of the field and up the road, they might have seen the happy, little, wee people dancing and prancing gleefully around the deserted merrymaking place. Eleanor and her new ideas bothered them no more. Helen McGhee, '16. HALLOWE'EN PARTY. It was a glorious company in motley array that gath- ered in the old chapel on Hallowe'en evening in response to an invitation given by the College Specials. Here be- fore witches, gobblins, ghosts, bandits, and many other characters, all became interested in "The Fate of Every Girl/' which was cleverly given. In seven acts were pre- sented the charm of infancy; childhood days; when big dolls figured most prominently; school days, with its skates and apples; sweetheart days accompanied by candy, special deliveries, and a diamond ring; the joy of the wedding day; home-sweet-home; and in the dim candle light, the approach of old age. From the chapel, all proceeded to the post office, where much merriment was aroused by the messages each received from the Hallowe'en Prophet. In the society halls, yawning faces of pumpkins and demons held sway over the imitation of I. W. C.'s new victrola. The delicacies of pumpkin-pie-tarts and fruit punch added much to the pleasure of the occasion. CIRCUS DAY. "Ladies and gentlemen! Please give your whole and Page Eleven &fje College Greetings undivided attention to the great circus procession which is now going to pass before you. First marches the band, grand, gorgeous, and gaudy; lumbering closely behind, the elephants, monstrous and magnanimous; following the elephants a terrifying, trembling train of tigers snapping their jaws at friends and foes alike; in great cages long, lengthy giraffes, lordly looking lions, babbling babboons, obnoxious ormithorehyuchi, prickly porcupines, ravenous rhinoceroses, lumbering leopards, and rampant rolbucks; and now, ladies and gentlemen frisking, frolicking toward you a marvelous display of those foolish fellows we call clowns; then lovely ladies enrapturing, enticing, and en- chanting mounted on black and white palfreys that prance impatiently while the bewitching beaming riders blush on everyone. Remember, ladies and gentlemen, before you moves the greatest show on earth !" Francis Sconce, '20. STARTING FOR DREEMLAND. (Continued from last month) SCENE II. Time — The next night. Place — Same as scene I. Personae — Same as Scene I, without Barbara and Irene. Helen — "1 wish Barbara and Irene would hurry back with those apples." Feril — "Probably they're having a hard time to get any." Winifred — "They can't get many because we have to have them fried for breakfast." Audrey — "Well, I won't eat any fried, anyway. I prefer mine raw." Helen — "Mary Louise." The M. L.s together— "What? Which one?" Audrey — "That's the Mary Louisae — or Mary Louise collectively speaking." Page Twelve MyJ W$t College (greetings Helen — "Mary Louise Witbeck, come over and visit me." M. L. W.— "What for?" Helen — "Oh, just for fun. We might have a sort of progressive slumber party and all change beds and part- ners." M. L. W. — "Or we might have everybody kiss every- body else goodnight. 1 know a girl that teaches in a boarding school who has to go tell each girl on her corri- dor goodnight, and kiss them all." Feril — "Well, start something like that here, and watch me run for the lake." Helen — "Well, you needn't think anyone would run after you." Audrey — "There come the girls. Let's pretend to be asleep." Jo — "I wish you were." (Irene and Barbara enter softly, whispering to each other as they stumble over the mattresses on the floor. Feril gives a well-simulated yawn and pretends to have just awakened.) "What time is it?" Irene (whispers) — "Sh — about 12 o'clock." M. L. P. alond— "Is that all? " Helen— "Hello, Barbara." Audrey — "Where are the apples? " Jo — "Give me one." Barbara — "I thot it was funny if you had all gone to sleep already." Audrey — "I wish we had." Feril— "So do I." Helen — "Now, isn't it the limit! Everybody's sleepy but me tonight." TheM. L.s— "We're not." Feril — "Did you have any trouble getting the ap- ples?" Irene — "We shocked 'em to death, coming over in these costumes. They were all in bed. Ruth had to get Page Thirteen ®fje College Greeting* up and unlock the screen and everybody wanted to know what we wanted, and we couldn't tell them for fear they wouldn't let us have any apples, so we went out to the kitchen and got some bread and butter and finally slipped out when they weren't looking." Barbara — "But mum's the word. Don't breathe a word in the morning." M. L. P. — (sitting up in bed) — 'isn't that someone coming down the path?" M. L.W. — "Oh, girls — it's a man. He got behind that tree." Winifred — "Is the back door locked?" M. L. W.— "Yes, I locked it." Feril — "Well, if he comes any nearer, Fritz, you stand up and let him get a glimpse of you in those curlers and he certainly won't come any further." M. L. P. — "He's listening." Helen — "Oh, I know you can't see that far away with- out your glasses." M. L. W. — "It's not far — it's right down here.' Barbara — "Well, you all can scare him away. I'm going to sleep." Helen — "Come on, let's see if it is a man." M. L. W. — "All right — come on, Mary Louisae." M. L. P. — "Oh, I'm afraid there might be snakes out there and I'm lots more afraid of them than of men." "Fritz" — "Anyway, nobody can get in." Jo — "Well, nobody would want to if they once got a glimpse of all these beds out here." Feril — "Oh, let's go to sleep. That's some of their attempts to liven things up. There's nobody there." M. L. P.— (Silently laughs). Winifred — "Stop shaking the porch so when you gig- gle, Mary Louise." Helen — "Well, if nobody will do anything else, guess 111 begin composing myself for sleep." Peril— "Goodnight, all!" Page Fourteen W$t College Greeting* MATRICULATION IN GERMAN SCHOOLS. One of the most vital characteristics of the German people is their love of formalities, which regulates even the most personal details of their daily life. Not only in the cities, but even in the smallest departure. No elevator may be in use, unless it be examined at fixed intervals. These and similar laws, in fact, all tend to realize the Ger- man ideal of government, which strives to make order a citizen's first duty, or to express this thought in the Kaiser's own words: "Ordnung ist die erste Buerger- pflicht." It is therefore not surprising that really important questions, such as the education of the young, are regu- lated with the utmost care. Three months before a child's sixth birthday the Ministry of Culture notifies the parents that their boy or girl must attend school at the be- ginning of the next semester. The first move to matricu- late, therefore, is made not by the father or mother, but by the schoolboard in behalf of each child in the Empire. The parents then take their small son or daughter to see the principal or "Direktor" of one of the schools in the district in which they are taxpaying members. The neces- sary factor in this enrollment is to have the child's birth and vaccination certificates, and, if he be of Christian par- entage his "Taufschein" or minister's statement of bap- tism. After this interview the child is matriculated in the school, although his work does not begin until the com- mencement of the next term, whether it be Easter or Michaelmas. This is the case in all public schools. It is also a universal regulation that no student over twelve years of age can matriculate in a city or state institution, unless he has been vaccinated for the second time. The "Volksschulen" or free public schools even en- gage a physician to perform this operation in case the pupils cannot afford to have it done at home. To ma- triculate in these schools no examination is required, the child is merely obliged to show his most recent "Zeugnis," which is a certificate of his previous work. Page Fifteen Cfje College (greetings For admission to the "Hoehere Toechter Schulen," which are girls' school for the higher classes, and to the "Gymnasia," however, a very rigid examination is de- manded, even if the prospective student is leaving one public school to enter another merely perhaps on account of his father's change of residence. These matriculation examinations even for the very young children are very se- vere and complicated and for more advanced pupils they usually cover a period of at least five days and are most exacting. The student writes a theme, translations from the Latin, Greek, English, French or which ever lan- guages his specific course may require, and given a number of mathematical problems to solve. If the average of these written examinations are marked IV. or V., which is equivalent to our 60 per cent and less the pupil is not permitted to take the oral examinations. If they are III. or above, however, he takes his "Muendliche Pruefung" and his parents are notified by the government whether he of these examinations deviate slightly in the different of these examinations leviate slightly in the different kingdoms, grand duchies and duchies of the Empire, but the general regulations are carried out with equal exacti- tude in Prussia, Saxe- Weimar or Anhalt. Thus when his subjects matriculate in school in their infancy, William II. has seen to it that accuracy is planted in their young minds, so that they may grow up to be more valuable members of his community in general and better soldiers in particular. Margaret Goldsmith, '17. * ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. At a mass meeting Tuesday morning, November 10, the Athletic Association adopted its new constitution. The main distinguishing point are: First, the athletic staff, which includes the executive committee and a representa- tive from each class is to supervise all enterprises for the promotion of athletic spirit and interest and control all Page Sixteen fcfje College Greeting* matters not otherwise provided for; second, the awarding of trophies and honors to those winning first place in track events, to those girls making college teams and show- ing especial ability in the sport or event in which they par- ticipate; third, a provision stating that only those who have paid their dues are members. At the same meeting the association voted to put in a hard tennis court which is to cost $150. The court is to be a gravel one on a bed of cinders. We congratulate ourselves on this step as it is something we have been try- ing to do for several years. We can certainly prophecy the liveliest tennis tournament next spring that has ever occurred on our campus. Y. W. C. A. NOTES. The Geneva meeting held October 22nd was very in- teresting. The girls who had the privilege of going to the summer conference told of the beautiful camp in its appeal to the physical as well as to the spiritual nature. The association had the great pleasure of having Miss Corbett, the field secretary, as a guest for a few days. She had charge of the meeting for November 1st. The subject was "A Bigger View." She gave the members a wealth of information on the splendid equipment, in of- fices and office force that the Y. W. C. A. has. How great the work really is and how valuable was forcibly brought out. We cannot help feeling proud that we have a part in this great organization. Another treat came November 8th when Miss Olm- sted, the city's visiting nurse, told the association of her work. Much interest was aroused in the open air school and pledges have been made to help in buying the equip- ment. The meeting for November lSth, 'The Rogues Gal- lery of the New Testament" was well conducted. Helen McGhee with the help of some of our new girls, Marjorie Barr, Aisla Allen, Reba Gaskins, showed types found in Page Seventeen Wbt College Greeting* the Bible which are not good ones to copy. The association received a letter from Miss Coppock, our Y. W. C. A. Student Secretary of Shanghai, China, which reads like a fairy story. Se tells of the school over there and its great work, adding bits of information about the customs and manners of the people that make it worth reading. Any one interested will find the letter on file in the association room. The attitude of all the girls toward the Week of Prayer was beautiful. The great crisis which all Chris- tian enterprises abroad are facing today was the theme for the prayers and is one that touches a responsive chord in every Christian heart. Every corridor is commended for its good attendance. The Association Monthly will be found on the maga- zine rack of the library. Do not fail to read it. Time is limited but one must not fail to keep in touch with the great movements of our association. In the November issue are articles on India, and China, and an especially in- teresting one on "War Times and Our Secretaries. Abroad.'' It shows the effect of war on the work of the association all over the world. The annual Christmas bazaar will be held December 10th. Many useful and pretty Christmas gifts will be on sale. Your hearty support is solicited. Remember De- cember 10th! * ALUMNAE NOTES. Cards were received by the friends of Francis Free- man announcing her marriage on the fourth of December to Mr. DeWitt T. Hartwell. They will be at home after the first of January at Marian, 111. Miss Freeman gradu- ated in the Home Economics department with the class of 1913 and taught last year at Marian. At the home of Mrs. Edward Lambert Clifford in Evanston, 111., on October 17, an afternoon was held for the members of the Illinois Woman's College Associa- Page Eighteen Wi)t College Greeting* tion. This was the semi-annual meeting of the associa- tion and was a social rather than a business meeting. About twenty-three were present although it was a rainy afternoon. Mrs. E. C. Fready is president of the associa- tion and Miss Clara Allan, who is a teacher in the Engle- wood High School, is secretary and treasurer. Miss Emma Mott, who has been doing fine work for a number of years as the director of the art department in the public schools of Chicago was also there. Among other guests were Miss Celia Cathcart and Laura Bannister, former students of I. W. C. During the last month a meeting of the Woman's Home Missionery Society of the Illinois Conference was held in Jacksonville. Mrs. Anna Stoward, who is presi- dent and Mrs. Lillian Griffith are both daughters of I. W. C. Among the delegates to the convention were quite a number of former students and also mothers of the present students. Mrs. Emma Graves Perkins of the class of 75 spent a few days in Jacksonville last week. She was returning to her home in San Francisco after attending the National Executive meeting of the Woman's Home Missionary So- ciety in Syracuse, N. Y., of which she is one of the most efficient officers. She is chairman of the Bureau of Ori- ental Work in San Francisco and is doing a wonderful work. Miss Nellie Reese of the class of 1900 has been re- cently elected president of the Woman's Club in Pana, 111. An item in the Northwestern Christian Advocate men- tioned the marriage of Miss Ruth Randle to Mr. Everett Warner. Mrs. Warner's mother was Mary Stookey, a member of the class of '76. Mrs. Randle's home is now in Springfield. The following taken from a letter written by Eliza- beth Dunbar, '13, assistant principal of the High School at Raymond, 111., did our hearts good: "I can't get along without our little paper for it keeps me in touch with the college as I can do in no other way. I am putting it on Page Nineteen ®fje College Greeting* the reading table in our High School and 1 notice that our students are reading it. 1 hope it may be the means of bringing some girls to the college.'' * LAMBDA MU. Lambda Mu held an informal reception at the Colonial Inn November 14th, and altogether, there were about forty members and friends who enjoyed the evening to- gether. In the dining room a color scheme of pink and white was carried out; pink Killarney roses, the society flower, were much in evidence. In the receiving line were Miss Mothershead; Miss Neville; Mary Louise Wit- beck, president of the society; Helen Dewitt, vice presi- dent; and Wylma Cox, secretary. Among the out of town guests were Homer Wherley of Astoria, Fred Walker and James Rowland or Rushville, Ray Stickel of Greenfield, Alfred Cox of Murrayville, Charles Stewart of Urbana, and Mr. and Mrs. Olney Wit- beck of Belvidere, and Roy Ousley of Brocton. PHI NU NOTES. The "cozy" held in the hall last month was a fine success. A number of our former members were there and it is hoped that they will come often. Refreshments were served and it was not until the dinner bell rang that anyone realized that the afternoon was gone. We left with a feeling of reluctance saying what a cozy time we had had at this first "cozy" and looking forward to the one on November 19. Two quarts of cream could not be allowed to go to waste simply because they were not taken to the picnic so the society bought them at reduced rates and the plans for a pan-cake breakfast were made. Such panccakes! None ever tasted better and they disappeared even faster than hot cakes usually do. Long before eight o'clock the last scrap had vanished and even the tantalizing odor i'age Twenty Wjje College Greeting* was gone from the halls. We hope we can again indulge in "the cakes that Margaret made." The annual Thanksgiving banquet is to take place at the Colonial Inn on the 28th of November. There will be a number of guests, former members of Phi Nu, whom we will be especially glad to see. This is always the great event of the society year. BELLES LETTRES. The Belles Lettres library is now being catalogued. Faculty and students will be welcome to use these books. Word has been received of the death of Genevieve Dague's father on October 30 in San Antonio. The fun- eral was held in Danville, Mr. Dague's old home. Several of last year's Belles Lettres girls were Woman's College visitors at Thanksgiving time. Miss Irene McCullough spent the Hallowe'en week end with Alma Harmel and Margaret Coultas. THETA SIGMA. The life and novels of Bjournstjerne Bjournsen, the emminent Norwegian author, are to form what promises to be a very interesting course of study for the next two months. Book reviews of two, "Arne" and "Mary" have proven to be exceptionally interesting. Bjournsen, who received the noble prize in 1911, has written many novels, which are worthy of more consideration than our modern authors, as a rule, obtain. A very entertaining feature of one meeting was the answering of roll call by limericks. * LOCALS. There have been a number of visitors this month: Mrs. Loveless, Mrs. Pawson, Mr. and Mrs. Witbeck, Mrs. Long, Mrs. Wilson, and Lela Waltrip have spent several day with daughters and friends. Page Twenty-one QCfje College Greeting* The second academy class is very glad to announce its class officer, Miss Berger. At the time of organization the following officers were elected: President, Marian Jane Robison; Vice President, Louise Land; Secretary and Treasurer, Thelma Walker. Although you have not heard much about our class, it will not be long until you do as we are a class full of "pep!" The Indiana Club had a picnic at Nichols Park Octo- ber 30. An unusually good picnic supper was enjoyed around a camp-fire. The Third Preps are glad to welcome Miss MacCoy as their class officer. The results of their election are: President, Nora Alexander; Vice President, Mary Fowler; Secretary, Ruby Baxter; and Treasurer, Jane Parkison. On November 2, the class enjoyed a masquerade party given by Mamie Kennedy at her home. The following Saturday the Fourth Preps entertained them at the home of Lena Johnson. A waffle breakfast at the Peacock Inn given by Miss MacCoy on November 16, was the latest of their social functions. Miss Mary Anderson gave a delightfully informal tea for those of third floor Harker on Monday, November 16. The Seniors cooked a sumptuous meal for themselves in the new students' kitchen Wednesday evening, Novem- ber 18. Fried chicken, combination salad, mashed po- tatoes, sweet potatoes, cake, and ice cream were a few of the things prepared. The German Club held its first meeting November 18. During the last month try-outs have been held for the College and Academy Glee Clubs. We should have good lively music for every student event with two such promising organizations. * A national convention of the Inter-Collegiate Prohi- bition Association is to he held at Topeka, Kansas, Decem- ber 29- January l. One thousand delegates are expected. From the items sent to the office by this association, we see that a number of colleges are giving credit courses Page Twenty -two QDfje College Greeting* dealing with the liquor problem under the department of Economics and Sociology. The University of Southern California and Oregon Agriculture College are among the latest to adopt this plan. The standard of the Agricultural College of the Uni- versity of Illinois has been raised so much that over three hundred flunked last month. According to press reports, British colleges are hard hit by the war, Cambridge having only 1,5 00 students against 3,500 last year, and the other universities being diminished in proportion. Belgium students are flock- ing to Cambridge in dire need. The University of Illinois is sendng a car load of clothng in response to a plea for aid. EXPRESSION NOTES. The first of the informal students recitals was given Wednesday, November 18th in Expression Hall by second semester students of last year and this semester's begin- ning students. There will be several of these student re- citals given each month, to which all are invited. They are not in the nature of a formal program, but are simply the exhibition of what is accomplished in private lessons, in the establishment of elements of expression, showing the progress of the students. Miss Glecker is ready to announce that if the interest displayed is sufficient, a dramatic club will be organized in a short time. It will not be a departmental club, and is open to any one interested. The membership is to be chosen by two try-outs, which are to take place the first week after the Christmas holidays. A committee of the faculty will act as judges at the try-outs. The number of members to be chosen from the applicants and the nature of the try-outs will be announced later. The club will not be an independent organization, but will come under the Students' Association and have student officers. Miss Page Twenty-three yy &fje College Greeting* Gleckler should like to see and talk with all those inter- ested as soon as possible. Much interest has been shown in conversation among the girls themselves, for the beginning of a course in par- liamentary usage. Miss Gleckler should like to have this interest chrystalized in actual application and will all those who wish to take this course please see me Miss Gleekler before Thanksgiving, so that the necessary supplies and materials may be obtained in time to begin the class at the first of next semester. HOME ECONOMICS. On Saturday evening, November 7, the Misses Walk- er, Leicht, and Ames were hostesses to the girls of the Home Economics department at a very informal party in the Domestic Science room. The time was spent in blow- ing soap bubbles, making candy, popping corn and making it into balls. During the evening it was suggested that a Home Economics club be organized for the purpose of studying certain topics which are of special interest and which could not be taken up in the various classes. The consumers' league and the pure food laws were mentioned as being suitable subjects. On Friday evening the girls met to organize this club and the following officers were chosen for the coming- year: Advisors — Misses Walker, Leicht, and Ames. President — Wilma Cox. Vice-President — Winnifred Burmeister. Secretary-Treasurer — Anna Moore. Program Committee — Hazel Kinnear, Grace Miles, Madeline Land. ART NOTES. Mr Knopf has her picture, 'The Pine Woods" on ex- hibition with the American Artists Annual Exhibition, now Page Twenty-four Wat College Greeting* being held at the Chicago Art Institute. This is the most important exhibition held in Chicago during the year and it is an honor to be included among the exhibitors. Dorothy Virgin, Ruth Young, Genevieve Meyers, Zella Rishel and Genevieve Spiece have recently enrolled in various art classes. Miss Knopf spent the week end, 14-15 in Chicago, seeing the American Exhibition and other exhibits in smaller galleries. THE MISSOURI CLUB. The Missouri Club appears on the scene this year, fewer in number but with just as much energy and push as ever. The new girls are a lively bunch and show great promise of keeping up the Missouri standard both in work and play. Our officers are as follows: Marie Johnson, presi- dent; Alma Mitchell, treasurer; Edna Robb, reporter. The ten of us enjoyed a table party in the dining room Thursday night November 19th. The black and yellow and the Missouri mule were much in evidence. Just watch us. ENDOWMENT GIFTS. The chapel hour Nov. 3, was a time of rejoicing when Dr. Harker made announcement of two valuable addi- tions to the endowment fund. A gift of one thousand dollars was given by some friend in Jacksonville who withheld her name. With his characteristic twinkle in his eye Dr. Harker waited for the applause to cease only to add that he had had another happy surprise. Ten thousand dollars has been given to establish an endowment fund in memory of Nellie Beatrice Jarman by her aged father of Onargo, 111. The applause which followed showed with what hearty co-operation the girls will enter the next campaign. As never before the old chart seemed Page Twenty-five ®f>e College Greeting* a thing of the past. How anxiously we will watch to see the squares marked off on a new one! j& 1913 ENDOWMENT AND IMPROVEMENT FUND. Payments to this fund continue in a very gratifying way. Since the last report in May 355 subscribers have paid in $24,816.23, making the total amount now paid $135,230.38, and the balance remaining unpaid only $47,012.57. Of the 1226 subscribers to this fund, 561 have now paid in full. The Finance Committee hope that the friends who have not yet made their first or second pay- ments will now respond promptly. It is also hoped that all the subscribers will plan definitely to make full payment by next June, which is the final date for the settlement of the fund. NO ANNUAL THIS YEAR. The question was raised in the last issue of the Greet- ings concerning an annual for this year. It seems that the Juniors had been quietly making plans for the publica- tion of the 'illiwoco" for this year and asked permission to do so. After earnest consideration the Heads of De- partments decided that it is not advisable to publish an annual this year for two reasons: First, "There is undue pressure of work laid upon a few students which of neces- sity affects the more serious work of the college; second, the expense involved is heavy and should not be under- taken by the students two years in succession. ,, All of us, sity affects the more serious work of the college; second, a decision, but are ready to abide by whatever is for the greater advancement of the school and its work. j& Eureka College Pegasus has a fine plan for putting class spirit to good use in giving different classes a chance to edit one of its numbers. Surely class enthusiasm will be well spent in the competition for the best number.
